Too much wobble on keyboard controls
Just bought the game and I'm having a little bit of an issue with the keyboard controls. In Audiosurf 1 I could use 1,2,3 to swtich between the left, middle and right lanes. I can't seem to figure out how to manipulate the input to have those controls if that's still possible.

Even if it's not possible I would use A and D or Left and right arrow but when I use them the ship wobbles all over the place and I can't easily tell what lane I'm in. It's honestly kinda fustrating.

Any advice on changing my input or help in general would be much appreciated. Until then I'll just have to get used to using the mouse.

This isn't really being helpful to your situation, but why not use a mouse instead? It's leap world's better than using a keyboard.

There's also the the persistent issue of a snap-to-center lane feature on keyboard controls. I can't help but strongly recommend you use the mouse instead.

It's part personoal preference part practicality. I usually play audiosurf on my laptop when I'm waiting for things. (classes for instance) so I don't always have a mouse and I dislike the trackpad. I also just prefer the the precision keyboard controls give.

Still, I can enjoy the game with a mouse and simply play the original when I'm on the go. However, I'd like to make it known that better keyboard controls would be nice. :P

The ship returning to the center if i depress left (arrow) or right (arrow) kind of destroys the keyboard controls for me. I'm used to playing with mouse but a bit of variety is nice. I think that keyboard controls would actually be more precise if this was able to be toggled on and off.

Well you could always attempt in feeling comfort with the keyboard. I already knew the auto-center feature would be in AS2 after watching a Closed Beta video before buying. I am using a laptop too, so trackpad is useless to me. I could always buy a Wireless Mouse for cheap but I'd rather pass on buying. It's a personal preference. I'm getting quite the hang of it though but sometimes it's tricky, esp. when I thought I had hit a color block when it counted as a miss.

I hope for an option to turn off auto-center in AS2. I am sure it will satisfy a number of players who've already played the original AudioSurf.

An option to turn off the annoying snap to center is long overdue to be honest. Summoning the mono clone on a keyboard is also still broken.
